          I believe it is indexing all the help text that pertains to Tools > Preferences, so the search widget in there works to maximum effect.

           

          Edit:

          And I recall it indexes dynamically so that if you change between any of the supported language, the index is built accordingly.  So,

           

          1) If you have an "AddVMOption -Duser.language=en" line in your sqldeveloper.conf file, the word "connections" will appear in the index.

          2) If you have an "AddVMOption -Duser.language=es" line in your sqldeveloper.conf file, the word "conexiones" will appear in the index.
